The Lay Man Photojournalist’s Rights

 

There has been a lot of talk in the news the last few years about what and where you can and can not legally photograph. I keep this paper from Petapixel describing my rights as a photographer with me at all times. It briefly describes your rights as a photographer in case someone gives you are hard time.

The Ryan Watkins Photography Experience – Sessions from Start to Finish

 

Here at Ryan Watkins Photography I like to make the session process as clear and simple as possible. Here is an outline of how sessions work at Ryan Watkins Photography.

1. Pre-Session Consultation

The first step in the session process at Ryan Watkins Photography is the pre-session consultation. During the pre-session consultation we meet in person and discuss the specifics of your session. I usually conduct pre-session consultations at Cops and Doughnuts in downtown Clare, Michigan or at other coffee shops closer to the client’s home. For clients who live over an hour from Clare, Michigan we can do the pre-session consultation over the phone, Facetime, or Skype. This is when we get to know each other, sign contracts, and discuss the specifics of the shoot.

2. Session

The second step in the session process at Ryan Watkins Photography is the session. This is where you get your photos taken at the time and location of your choosing. 

3. Images Delivered via Private Online Gallery

The third step in the session process at Ryan Watkins Photography is the delivery of your images via private online gallery. Within a week of your portrait session or wedding you get to see the images from your session in a private online gallery. Your images can be easily shared with friends and family by copying the link to the gallery. You can also download these images and post them to social media or make prints of your own. The online gallery also allows you to order prints from Ryan Watkins Photography from the convenience of your own home. Prints and products ordered through your private gallery will be shipped to the location of your choosing. Most of the prints and products offered through Ryan Watkins Photography can be purchased through the online gallery. If you are interested in purchasing specialty products such as wood prints, canvas prints, or portrait books simply contact me after your session.
